Hino announces new dealership in the capital

The latest Hino Australia dealership will allow the brand’s range of hybrid-electric trucks to thrive in the nation’s capital

Heavy vehicle manufacturer Hino Australia has announced a further commitment to its local customers with the launch of a new dealership in the nation’s capital.

Hino Australia CEO and president Richard Emery has confirmed that a new Hino dealership will be opening in Canberra.

“We are delighted that Eagers Automotive has further increased its involvement with Hino with the opening of Canberra Hino,” Emery says.

“Canberra is an important market for Hino – its residents, businesses and government departments are renowned for their commitment to the environment, so we expect our 300 Series Hybrid Electric light-duty truck to be extremely popular.”

Alongside the new dealership, Mirko Milic will bring almost 20 years of experience as a dealer principal at Canberra Toyota and Lexus to the new Hino dealership as its dealer principal.

Milic says he’s excited about the opportunities ahead with the Hino dealership in Canberra.

“The new dealership is centrally located on the former site of Canberra Toyota in Fyshwick – Canberra Toyota is well-known in the local community for its commitment to customers and after-sales service,” Milic says.

“This ethos forms the foundation of our culture at Canberra Hino where our team combines excellent Hino sales, parts and service knowledge with a skilled and experienced management team.

“The new dealership features a 200m2 indoor showroom, an additional five service bays, a parts warehouse with an increased capacity of 4000m2, and a dedicated wash bay.

“Personally, I’ve enjoyed my return to the Hino family and the trucking industry – I loved my 10 years as general manager of Tory Hino and have more recently been a shareholder in a competing truck brand.”

Milic and Canberra joins Hino Australia’s dealership network that comprises of 65 sales and service centres around the country.
